Dan Campbell Trusts Brad Holmes 100%
“I don’t really think of that,” Campbell said after the Lions' 26-14 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. “I just think of, ‘What do we have here now?' Look, I’ve talked to (general manager) Brad (Holmes), we’ve kind of gone back and forth, but I’m not — they can do and have whatever they want, we’ll figure our stuff out here.”
Despite the trade possibilities discussed by general manager Brad Holmes, Campbell trusts that any decision made will be for the betterment of the team.
“I just know this, and I said this, I don’t know, probably a week ago,” Campbell said. “Here’s what I know 100% is whether we do something or don’t do something, I trust Brad 100% that it’s for the betterment of this team, it’s the right thing to do. So we’ll see where that goes.”
